Jobs back at Apple
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has after taking a leave of absence to recover from cancer surgery, according to a brief report in The Mecury News: "Jobs has been participating in high-level staff meetings over the past month and corresponding by e-mail with analysts and Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak. 'All I can say is that he was in excellent spirits,' wrote Wozniak in an e-mail when asked about his old friend. Those expecting the intensely private Jobs to offer an Oprah-worthy glimpse into his battle with a rare but treatable form of pancreatic cancer will be disappointed. mployees and others who have had dealings with Jobs since his return say he never acknowledges his illness or recovery. He is the same old Steve and just as intensely driven as before."
